SS102fm@WYD2016 - Catecesis with Archbishop Cupich of Chicago

This morning (Thursday) we gathered for morning prayer, catechesis and Mass. The catechesis was led by archbishop Blase Cupich (of Chicago) who taught us of the importance of letting God's mercy into our lives not just for the sins we commit, but also for the sins that are visited on us. In other words, God wants to bring us his healing and love and wants to untie those hurts that paralyse us.

He reminded us too that each of us is loved immensely by God and mercy is the key to bringing about peace in our world. Reconciliation brings peace because to reconcile means to see eye to eye. Even when it seems that people don't respond to our attempts at reconciliation, love never fails. We are called to be witnesses to God's unending love and mercy in this world.
